This user has written to our Addictions Expert to say that whenever she is down, she whips out the credit card and goes on a shopping spree.

The debts are piling up, and her cupboards are bulging with all the stuff she has been buying.

She realises it's a problem and her husband is furious as well and disappointed in her. But she doesn't seem to be able to stop this.
